Filament Raises £2.85 Million in Funding

by Kay Aloha Villamor in May 11th, 2023

Filament, a London, UK-based AI-powered investment intelligence startup, has raised £2.85 million in support of its platform for the private equity industry. 

The funding came in the form of an Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) round led by Wealth Club.

The company’s platform, Syfter, enables private equity firms to create unique investment strategies by integrating third-party data with their existing internal data. Syfter helps private equity firms showcase their data technology abilities during fundraising and secure the best deals in an increasingly competitive market. 

Phil Westcott, co-founder and CEO of Filament, said that in addition to the funding, the company can benefit from gaining access to Wealth Club’s network of investors, “many of which work within the world of private equity or have close ties to the sector."

Westcott added: “This in itself presents a great opportunity for building more ambassadors of the brand and greater awareness of what we offer.”
